South Carolina's Mystical Golf announces summer vacation getaway
published by World Golf Wire May. 22, 2013
Mystical Golf - owner and operator of the acclaimed The Witch, Man-O-War and The Wizard golf courses - announces its value-packed, affordable stay-and-play summer vacation getaway from June 1 - Aug. 31. Proclaimed the "Best Value" in the Grand Strand by GOLF Magazine, Mystical Golf's trio of diverse Dan Maples-designed 18s are all rated from 4 to 4-1/2 stars by Golf Digest. At $89 per person, per night (taxes included), this is an extraordinary offer. "Summer provides the best value for getaways here at Mystical Golf," says Claude Pardue, President and CEO. "We like to make it as easy as pie to play our three heralded courses and enjoy comfortable lodging ideal for recharging after a full day of fun in the sun."
Let The Witch Golf Club cast its spell in Conway, just northwest of Myrtle Beach
published by GolfCarolina.com May. 13, 2013
Architect Dan Maples used 500 acres halfway between Myrtle Beach and Conway to craft something special, a 6,796-yard par 71 that opened in 1989.
There are some memorable holes balanced between the nines. A couple of forced carries add some heroism to the day but won't overwhelm the higher handicaps. The best stretch comes through a marshy swamp to finish the front nine. It takes a solid swing to hit the par-3 seventh green, which is guarded by a pond and large bunker in front. It takes a game of leapfrog over two wetlands to reach the ninth green in regulation.
The Witch does flirt with a main road at No. 11 and 12, but for the most part, golfers play through the serenity and silence of the backwoods. You're more likely to see alligators and wild turkeys along the way than other groups.
Seek out Dan Maples courses for ideal couples golf along the Grand Strand in the Carolinas
published by World Golf.com May. 01, 2013
Glen and Beth Sible have a strategy every time they head south for a spring golf trip. The couple from Carson City, Mich., seeks out courses designed by Dan Maples. Maples has done some fine work in his career, especially in his backyard of the Carolinas. But he's no big name, like Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye or Donald Ross, and his courses rarely land on coveted "best of" lists. So why are the Sibles so bullish on Maples? It's because of the playability factor. "We try to play as many Maples courses as we can," Glen Sible said just minutes after finishing a recent round at The Witch Golf Club in Conway, S.C., just minutes from Myrtle Beach. "They are always nice. If you hit a good shot, you are rewarded." Beth Sible said Maples courses are always women friendly, the critical component that allows the couple to enjoy playing together.

Best Bargain - The Witch
This layout in East Conway scares wayward hitters with acres of eerie, ball-ensnaring marsh and wetlands, but delights with a back nine that sports elevation change that's rare for the area.
This Dan Maples creation opens with a card-wrecking 425-yard par 4 and never lets up. Stay & Play package deals with sibling courses Man O'War and the Wizard can drive prices frighteningly low.
Myrtle Beach should be every golfer's spring trip of choice during Masters weekend
published by TravelGolf.com Apr. 15, 2013
This is my first trip to Myrtle Beach in arguably its busiest season, and it's easy to see why this is such a sought-after golf destination every spring, especially for those in the Midwest and East Coast. When my plane left Michigan yesterday, there were semi-snowflakes flying outside. It was just a quick less-than-two-hour flight, and within an hour of landing I was on the first tee at The Witch Golf Links in Conway, S.C., just 20 minutes from downtown. That's about as smooth a trip from snow country to golf country gets this time of year. The Witch is one of the dozens of underrated golf courses in the region because it's away from the beach. It's fun from the white tees (6,300 yards). It won’t beat you up, and there’s not a house or condo in sight. I saw several alligators and a fivesome of wild turkeys that tried to play through on our front nine.

Course of the Week: The Witch
published by Back9Network Feb. 19, 2013
It’s very easy to fall under the spell of The Witch, one of the most challenging, beautiful golf courses in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
The superbly conditioned Witch is actually part of a triumvirate of Myrtle Beach courses — also including Man O’ War and The Wizard — owned and operated by Mystical Golf, which specializes in value-driven stay-and-play packages. The three outstanding, distinct courses were designed by renowned course architect Dan Maples, who did a masterful job of weaving the 6,796-yard, par-71 Witch through 500 acres of pristine property, most of it natural wetlands filled with numerous species of beautiful flowers and plants.
The environmentally sensitive Witch, which opened in 1989, is considered Mystical’s signature course. Even the 4,000 feet of raised wooden bridges traversing The Witch’s wetland areas, lakes and Waccamaw Swamp are environmentally sensitive. The Witch’s tee markers, which resemble pointed witches hats, are actually pointed stumps of cypress trees collected from the swamp comprising much of the front nine.

Golf in Myrtle Beach, with a Mystical touch
published by Metro New York Jan. 07, 2013
After a recent visit, Mystical Golf's trifecta of Myrtle Beach courses — The Witch, Man-O-War and The Wizard — now holds the pole position on my golf vacation radar. Why? The three Dan Maples' designs are flat-out superb, the maintenance is country club-good and the price is off-the-charts reasonable — especially the stay-and-play packages. Though Man-O-War and The Wizard are adjacent and The Witch is 10 minutes away, each course is a golf universe unto itself. The Witch is Myrtle Beach golf at its finest with many tricks up her devious sleeve as 500 acres of tranquil cypress groves and wetlands provide plenty of hazards due to Mother Nature. Strategy is rewarded as the par-71, 6,702-yard layout is an SAT test of the ancient game.
Muscular Man-O-War is soothed by a 100-acre lake on its edge. This is a study in water management as H2O touches every hole The par-72, 6,967-yard Man-O-War intrigues with its spectacular (and rare) back-to-back island greens on 13 and 14.

Claude Pardue, president and CEO of Myrtle Beach-based Mystical Golf, owns and operates three courses in the world's public-course capital - the Witch, Wizard and Man O' War. Post-college, Pardue worked in his father's Burlington, N.C., insurance/financial services agency for nine years. Not interested in inheriting the reins upon his dad's retirement, Pardue and then-partner Richard Lee purchased Hyland Hills, a somewhat tired course in Southern Pine, in 1984, when its gross total sales were just north of $550,000. When they sold Hyland Hills in 1999 its total sales were $2.1 million. Meanwhile, the business and marketing genius had expanded his business to Myrtle Beach, and, since each course opened, the Witch still averages about 44,000 annual rounds, and Wizard and Man O' War about 42,000. They are thriving despite the recession thanks to Pardue's insistence on providing customers with the region's best bang for their buck.

The Wizard Golf Club isn't exactly the Old Course at St. Andrews, and the Witch Golf Club won't be confused with Pinehurst No. 2, but that doesn't stop Claude Pardue from drawing inspiration from those two great courses. In fact, the one thing you can say about Mystical Golf, which owns a trio of golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area that also includes Man O' War, is that it never stands pat.
For years now, Pardue, the CEO and president of Mystical Golf, has been massaging these three unique courses along. The best part is that they are all different, and they continue to evolve.
Mystical Golf's The Witch, The Wizard, and Man-O-War Comprise a Myrtle Beach Theme Park
published by Weekend Golfer Magazine Online Dec. 12, 2012
A major part of the Grand Strand—South Carolina's 60 miles of vacation and beach playground-is Myrtle Beach. And as any golf aficionado knows, it is called the "Golf Capital of the World" with its more than 100 courses and its myriad golf/hotel/restaurant/entertainment/beach options. Both its short distance from I-95 and the nearby Myrtle Beach International Airport, with its non-stop flights from many major cities, make all the attractions easily accessible. Sometimes, these myriad options, especially where to play golf and where to stay, can be confusing. All sorts of excellent golf packages exist up and down the Grand Strand, but Claude Pardue's Mystical Golf offers one of the best plans for two reasons. One, the three well-conditioned golf courses, all designed by renowned architect Dan Maples, are totally different layouts spread around eye-catching scenery, and, two, the whole experience, from the golf, to the pro shops, to the food and beverage services, to the lodging is extremely affordable.

Golf Is Mystical in Myrtle Beach!

You know how it goes...one friend calls up wondering what you are doing for your birthday. Then another one calls and baits you a bit with "we haven't played golf together lately, don't you want an opportunity to win your money back." Next thing you know you have booked ocean front accommodations, three days of golf on three mysterious courses and are heading to the range to tune up the game. After all it is my birthday...I know I am going to be lucky! Let's start with The Witch, a target golf sort of course that winds through 500 acres of the most beautiful swamp you will ever see. Playing this golf course and witnessing the wildlife and scenic insights into the surrounding marshes will definitely cast a spell over you. While I did not witness any witches flying around even though it was their enchanting time of the year, my flat blade accounted for a few grounded birdies.

The Wizard - an enchanting golf adventure
published by Ladies Golf Journey Nov. 05, 2012
We usually play a links course in our area so when I learned we were playing The Wizard I thought open fairways, some high grass, and a little water. The first thing you notice is that the clubhouse does not look like any clubhouse that you have seen before. It’s a castle style clubhouse you might see in Scotland. You can imagine Harry Potter flying around in the sky. I even looked for Arnold Palmer to be standing on one the bridges like his famous pose at St. Andrews since we were in fantasy land.

The Witch, which is located in Conway just west of Myrtle Beach, is the most difficult of the three, and it's built on 500 acres of swampland, complete with vast amounts of wildlife, including alligators. The themes, of course, are obvious, with each representing a sort of mythical experience. The Wizard has a clubhouse that resembles a castle; Man 0' War, believed to be the only course in the world with back-to-back island greens, has a clubhouse that sits over the water (as does the golf course, in a sense). And The Witch is isolated in the bogs with plenty of trees, wetlands and 4,000 yards of bridgework.
Man-O-War Golf – a course for thoroughbreds or a dangerous fish
published by Ladies Golf Journey Oct. 29, 2012
Man O' War is a great race horse in my neck of the woods, but when I talked to the folks at Man-O-War Golf about the famous thoroughbred we seemed to have a language barrier. It wasn't until I looked at the yardage book and saw little squiggly things in the water that I realized that we were talking about two different things – a racing icon and a marine organism that most people call a jelly fish. The third option is the large battleship theme featured on their website. We played Man-O-War on the third day of golf at the trio of courses named "Mystical Golf." The owner, Claude Pardue, and architect, Dan Maples, designed the courses to be completely different from each other. Man O WarThis course has 18 holes of water with fewer trees and large greens. Don't let the open wide fairways fool you. It is no walk in the park. There will be a war between you and the course.
Mystical Golf Group offers enchanting vacation options

They make up the Mystical Golf Group, three courses among the hundred or so scattered up and down the Grand Strand, 60 miles of Atlantic coastline that has Myrtle Beach at its focal point. But there's really nothing mystical about the golf at The Witch, The Wizard and Man O' War … at least not in the spiritual or supernatural definitions of the word. Nope, these are three solid, honest-to-goodness tests of golf that put the challenge right in front of you on every one of the 54 holes. But then, "solid" and "honest-to-goodness" aren't nearly as marketable terms at "Mystical." And besides, there is something a little magical about this threesome designed by architect Dan Maples.
The Witch – gives you that come hither look
published by Ladies Golf Journey Oct. 24, 2012
The name alone pulls you to come play this challenging course, to see who wins – you or The Witch. As you drive into the course, it looks like any golf course, with its gently rolling fairways bordered by trees and a few bunkers scattered throughout. But leaving the clubhouse and on your way to the first hole it is a completely different story, traveling on wooden bridges across dark water swamps and surrounded by cypress trees with hanging moss.Their "yellow brick road" is 4,000 feet of bridgework winding through cypress tree swamps, across lakes and over wetland areas filled with numerous species of flowers and plants. Pulling up to the first hole you laugh a little. The tee markers first look like witches hats, but with further inspection, they are actually made from cypress knees, with "orange" and white paint to mark the forward tees. Like snowflakes no two are alike.

Myrtle Beach’s Mystical Golf is Magical
published by Southern New England Golfer Sep. 24, 2012
Claude Pardue was an entrepreneur who owned a golf course in the Pinehurst area of North Carolina. In the late 1980’s he traveled to Myrtle Beach to find a piece of property that would make a great golf course. He found a 500-acre parcel between Conway and So. Myrtle Beach. "As soon as I walked the property, I knew that I had found the spot where I would build a magical golf course," recalled Pardue who brought a few writers from the northeast down in March to experience and play his three courses. "I named the course The Witch and it opened in 1989," said the effusive Pardue who talked about the great work that course architect and fellow North Carolinian Dan Maples did on the design. Since the course takes you through this beautiful swampland, you see many alligators, birds of prey and the most spectacular cypress and live oak trees with hanging moss.
